As her cake said on Adele Hepbron Day in August of 1981, Adele had 80 years, and more, at Silver Bay. She first came as a child and as an adult taught generations of Silver Bay visitors the fine points of watercolor painting. I was fortunate indeed to hear recently from Adele’s grandniece, Susan (Hepbron) Tantum, who has shared family photos of Adele and Silver Bay so we can enjoy them here.

Below, photos of Adele and her family the week of Adele Hepbron Day, in 1981.
Her own parade!
Watching, family members Sandy, Dana, Matt & Andrew
With nephew George T. Hepbron III…
…who also paints…
…as does Dana Woods.

In 1986, the Hepbron family gathered at Silver Bay for a reunion. Below, Adele on the porch, and on the lawn with her great-grandnieces and nephews.
In 1992, Adele’s art appeared on the cover of Expressions.
My thanks to Susan for these images. For my earlier post on Adele, click here.
